Trip Moments

Blue Tulip   
When I entered it was not necessary to buy an admission ticket. The entrance to Novodevichy Cemetery was quite unremarkable, the quiet outdoor space featuring springtime was in full bloom. The quietude and the smell of flowers was quite a surprise. It was like opening up a Russian history book, since this palace of art contains 26,000 significant individuals from all levels who contributed deeply to the historical development of Russia, who now lie in eternal rest. They are the pride of Russia, and include politicians, authors, artists, scientists, famous physicians, merchants, and heroic sons and daughters. Each person, whether great or small, each has a statue that wordlessly explains their work and contributions, describing the most beautiful aspects of their lives to visitors. Even though I don’t read Russian, through this unique form of funerary art, I was able to broadly guess at the faded war glories of Tsarist Russia along with many bygone events of great oppression. The beauty, sadness, and quiet of the cemetery made me understand the phrase “Death is just as sacred as life,” since this place is not a symbol of the end of life but rather is spiritual home where the soul is purified, and a total transformation occurs. In using their art to morn an individual, the artists have marvelously added to life; you will praise tongue in cheek the Russian statue designers, who used artistic techniques according to the intentions of the deceased and combined that person’s identity, personality, and monument to make an original and ingenuous fusion. It can absolutely be said that this is one of the great 3 famous European cemeteries, along with the Central Cemetery of Vienna (Wiener Zentralfriedhof) and the Père Lachaise Cemetery of Paris.
